Seder and Show In Seattle

This is Passover at sundown tonight and in the past 24 hours Jews all across the globe have been starting the seder ceremony to remember what happened to the Jewish People thousands of years ago. But, in addition, Jews and visitors to Seattle will be able to see the remembrance and witnessing of other more modern seminal events for the Jews, too.

This year for Yom HaZikaron — Israel’s official “Day of Remembrance” — the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle is creating a special exhibit of photographs, stories and personal reflections. These honor the memories of those killed in wars and acts of terrorism. You are invited to connect on a personal level to dozens of the thousands of fallen men, women and children whose names are remembered each year, in Israel, on Yom HaZikaron. The Seattle exhibit will be at several sites, each on a different date, so when you arrive, check the list below.

March 29-April 6: Hillel at the University of Washington
April 8-10: Congregation Ezra Bessaroth
April 11-15: Stroum Jewish Community Center
April 16-18: Temple Beth Am
April 18-23: Stroum Jewish Community Center
April 23-25: Temple B’nai Torah

Many times you land in a strange city when you would normally have been spending a special day or Holy time with your family at home. Business travelers get caught with this often. But, always try to connect with “your” community in the new city. Many times people will “reach out” and invite you in a true communal spirit.

Tomorrow, in the interest of Understanding, I’ll share a little of what Passover is and how a seder is celebrated, as this event is a common thread for all Abrahamic Faiths.
